Charlie Cox may have appeared for a short cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but it’s still unclear when Marvel really plans to bring his Matt Murdock back to the spotlight. As per a new rumor though, we could be seeing him in the Echo starring Alaqua Cox.
According to The Weekly Planet (via The Direct), Daredevil is said to be returning for three episodes of Echo, and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin will be back in the series as well. Here’s the quote:
“Yep, Daredevil is in it for three episodes, as in Charlie Cox. Kingpin, Vinnie D’Onofrio is in four. The Kingpin storyline is building up to him running for mayor of New York City. Apparently, he’s going to be wearing an eye patch because he was shot in the head in Hawkeye… Daredevil is also going to be rocking a red and black suit and is looking for Jessica Jones.”
Again, this is just a rumor for now, but it certainly does track with all the other buzz about Disney working on bringing Daredevil back as well as Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones. With Echo being a handicapped hero, it would make sense for Daredevil to act like some sort of mentor, and he would have a personal stake with her, seeing that his nemesis, Wilson Fisk, is her uncle.
I’ll admit, Kingpin’s MCU return was kind of underwhelming, but there’s some huge potential for him to really get reinvented with the Echo series.
No specific release date has been announced for Echo, but you can catch her debut in Hawkeye which is now available on Disney+.
